What’s the Problem?
The E. coli outbreak includes 11 confirmed cases to date, with 8 in King County and 1 each in Benton, Snohomish and Walla Walla counties, according to the Seattle Times. Of the 11 cases, 7 people have been hospitalized and 3 developed hemolytic uremic syndrome (HUS), a serious condition that affects blood and blood vessels and can result in kidney failure. Children were particularly hard-hit in the outbreak — of the 11 cases, 6 patients were children under 10 years old. One of the patients was a 1-year-old child.
This recall began on May 14, 2021, and affects all flavors, sizes and best-by dates of PCC Organic Grass-Fed Yogurt (all 8-oz. and 16-oz containers). PCC Community Markets also warned that the following PCC deli items may contain recalled yogurt:
- Yogurt (salad bar)
- Butter Chicken (hot bar and to-go casseroles)
- Spicy Yellow Curry Chicken (hot bar and to-go casseroles)
- Tzatziki Sauce (grain bowl bar, to-go spreads)
- Sticky Toffee Pudding (refrigerated desserts)
Health officials say they are working with Pure Eire Dairy to identify and recall all products contaminated with E. coli. An official from PCC Community Markets said its stores have stopped using the recalled yogurt in its prepared foods and will refund customers who return yogurt.
